Iran in 1971. Two young students from opposite ends of society meet by the sea at a time when revolution hangs in the air. Bijan (Shahrooz Mahmoodi), the son of aristocrats close to the regime of the Shah, prepares to leave for college and feels the pressures of a future already decided by his powerful father. He meets Layla (Rana Ghiassi), a girl from the wrong side of Tehran, who forces him to question everything. Their bond will challenge class and social divisions in a world that is soon to disappear. "Azizam" is an intimate window into a moment of history that continues to cast a shadow in our time.
